California Lutheran University is located in the perfect spot of Southern California. Nestled between beaches, mountains, city or countryside, the possibilities become endless. There is always something going on around you. So with that said, I give you a list of 25 things to do while attending college here in Thousand Oaks, California.

  1. Spend an afternoon playing volleyball or swimming in the oceans of Malibu.
  2. Join a club and actually commit to attending meetings. You will make friends and mostlikely get some free food as well.
  3. Attend a movie premier at Muvico.
  4. Go cliff jumping. There are tons of places within a half hour drive, just look them up!
  5. Shop or play around at Venice Beach.
  6. Get lost in wildwood. Trails lead you to a waterfall, caves, or even a rock shaped like a lizard.
  7. Walk along the Santa Monica pier.
  8. Do the famous Hollywood Hike.
  9. See a live taping of a show.
  10. Splurge and spend a day at Disneyland or Six Flags.
  11. Line dance at Borderline. Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it!
  12. Visit Universal Citywalk. It’s free and really fun.
  13. Attend a professional sports game. The Rams, Dodgers, Lakers…all within a short drive!
  14. Walk to the cross to watch the sunset. It’s easy and worth the beautiful view.
  15. Go to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and find your favorite stars.
  16. Take a trip to LACMA or the Getty. Whether art is for you or not, it’s an incredible experience to walk around either place.
  17. Attend Horror Nights around Halloween at Universal Studios.
  18. Visit the Staples center for a sports game or concert.
  19. Buy something in Beverly Hills.
  20. Go to In-n-Out and order something off their secret menu (animal fries recommended).
  21. Go to improv on Thursday nights. You won’t regret it.
  22. Get food at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles in Los Angeles.
  23. Attend a CLU dance-either Monte Carlo or the spring dance.
  24. Volunteer just for fun. Habitat for Humanity, Circle K, Relay for Life-CLU offers tons of ways to give back.
  25. Do an overnight trip with friends-whether it’s a night of camping or a week-long road trip, college is all about making memories that will last a lifetime.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
